Pixel Qi screens represent the 'next stage' of tablet evolution. They are capable of acting as full-on LCD displays, or low-energy E-Ink displays. Notion Ink is almost ready to launch the first tablet capable of taking advantage of this technology. The Adam is more than just a gimmick tablet with a cool screen...it is the toughest competition that the iPad has. (via Android and Me)

It has a 10.1” screen (compare that to Apple's 9.7”), runs on Android (or Ubuntu or Chromium), sports a 1GHz dual core Tegra 2 processor (as opposed to the iPad's 1 GHz A4) and has 3 USB outputs as well as HDMI out. Compare that to the iPad which has...VGA out. The Adam is capable of outputting full 1080p video, while the iPad can only handle 720p.
While the iPad's 10 hour battery life is pretty impressive, the Adam's Pixel Qi screen allows it to blow that out of the water. The company is claiming somewhere around 16 hours of video/LCD display use, or 160 hours of backlight-off E-Ink use. Both tablets are multitouch capable, pack WiFi, 3G, and Bluetooth. The iPad is a little lighter and has a better resolution (1024x768 versus 1024x600).

Unlike the iPad, the Adam can multitask. It can also accept SD cards and it packs a 3 MP swivelling autofocus camera on its back. The Adam has an ambient light sensor, RF, AGPS, proximity sensors, an accelerometer, and a TouchPad. It will launch in June or July for between $327 and $800.
